On this day, 6 years ago we lost an icon. The man who left us tons of cool devices and especially, Apple. A company filled with amazing people who are the best in the business in their fields. Apple just openend Steve Jobs Theater about a month ago at the September Event.
This was the first time Apple spoke about Steve Jobs at an Event and it was a magical and emotional moment.
I would like to finish with this one.
Steve Jobs at AllThingsD
This question is about one of the iPhone 4 prototypes being left or stolen in bar by an Apple employe.
Walt: So you had a prototype of one of your products that wound up at a bar…
The audience just freaked out
Walt: We don’t know the whole story… I wanted to ask you about the duality to this. Some people don’t approve of checkbook journalism. If what we know is true, but on the other hand the police go and don’t issue a search warrant, and they grab someone’s computer — there’s a lot of stuff, at least with my computer I wouldn’t want anyone to have, and they grab this journalists assets…
Steve: Well a guy… who can say if he’s a journalist.
Walt: Where do you come down on this?
Steve: There’s an ongoing investigation. I can tell you what I do know, though. To make a product you need to test it. You have to carry them outside. One of our employees was carrying one. There’s a debate about whether he left it in a bar, or it was stolen out of his bag. The person who found it tried to sell it, they called Engadget, they called Gizmodo.
The person who took the phone plugged it into his roommates computer. And this guy was trying to destroy evidence… and his roommate called the police. So this is a story that’s amazing — it’s got theft, it’s got buying stolen property, it’s got extortion, I’m sure there’s some sex in there (huge laughs)… the whole thing is very colorful. The DA is looking into it, and to my knowledge they have someone making sure they only see stuff that relates to this case. I don’t know how it will end up.
